“Did you read the argument I was replying to? You have changed the argument. That is fine though. I am all for child safety locks but banning the sale and transfer of semi automatic weapons (look up that term if you are unfamiliar with it) is a pretty cut and dried violation of the 2nd amendment. Until you change that..... good luck. While you are at it though, you should consider what other constitutional protections you want to willingly abandon.”

“And maybe China's leaders are acting somewhat similarly . . . with aggression towards Vietnam and the South China Sea. Their populace seems restless too. I keep hoping there will be more "people rising up" to shatter outworn political structures. The stage is set for it astrologically.”

“Does anybody else think Putin created this crisis to direct energy outward, so the building resentment against him at home wouldn't catch fire from the Ukrainian Maidan revolt? When that immense demonstration against him happened a year or so ago I thought it would have put a fear into him. When a leader makes external aggression the people often unite, and I'm wondering if that's his ploy. But Ihaven't heard anyone else say this.”

“During the Syrian crisis, Putin had made a national media declaration that the Americans were trying to take Syria as a staging ground to launch a sort of jihad to rid the world orthodox christians. So yeah, apparently, the Russians are in a defensive posture.”

“Granted . . . but I've seldom felt it useful to use "should." Understanding the "why" seems more useful . . . and that's complicated I'm sure. Capitalism comes to mind, as well as a compulsive reaction against social programs, plus an automatic antipathy to restrictions on "freedom," and probably many other factors.”

“And what a grand gadget you have . .. I have a gadget from my grandmother and I am 72, that opens all sizes of lids, with a gearshift-like gadget. This new one sounds intriguing though, especially the simpler one.”

jacmed on Apr 11, 2014 at 19:25:14

“I have one of those, too - in fact, I have two different gadgets that open all sizes of lids and they were both my grandmother's. One of the more modern gadgets I have is a plastic thingy that has a slot at one end and is used to grip and flip up pop and beer can pop-tops (got that from a bartender). I also have a gadget made by Foley in the '40s, I think, that fits under the edge of a jar and pops the lid just enough to let air in so that the lid can be easily screwed off. As I said, I just love gadgets and I do have some really weird ones!”

“But they are in a real trap : they believe it's a sin to have premarital sex . . . so what are they gonna do? It's like the literal Bible believers and evolution . . .in a trap. I'm sorry for them. Sometimes it seems like so much of one's life depends on which church they walk into, which tells them what to believe, and melds into that church's "us" versus other churches "them's". Likewise abortion and gay marriage/sex. If you believe you believe. I don't see an easy way out of it . . . except the young people are much more adaptive, and will change the church over the long haul. But these people are in a real trap.”

“Thanks much, Colbey ! ! ! My grandson had the same situation as this girl when he was 3, lost the sight in one eye, but has been carefully examined in the healthy eye to preserve that vision. He's 17 now, and handsome as can be. The info you shared was just about the same back then . . . I was just curious if newer discoveries of cause had occurred. His father spotted it from a photo too, and he'd just heard on the radio to watch for this. It can also mean a brain tumor, so we were real worried until we found out it was "just" Coats!”

colbey on Apr 6, 2014 at 20:36:42

“somewhat great news for your grandson! i mean, it would have been nicer if it hadn't been anything, but i'm glad he's doing well.

the only thing that might have been "newer" was that they think they may have discovered that it's the result of a "problem" with a particular gene. but i certainly didn't read the technical papers.

i'd never heard of it before this article. now, i just might remember something if i ever see a kid's photo where one or both eyes have a strange yellowish glow.”

“I wonder what causes Coat's disease.”

colbey on Apr 5, 2014 at 21:11:42

“wikipedia (not always the best source, but not the worst either--they've cleaned up a LOT) says it's a congenital condition, not hereditary. meaning, it either exists at birth or shortly after.

the coats' website says it is rare, and affects males more (69% males). they claim there is some indication it's the result of the NDP gene. they link to an OMIM webpage, which has links to some more technical papers.

i was wondering what Kawasaki disease. it's an autoimmune disease that affects some of the blood vessels, causing them to became inflamed. it is mostly seen in children under 5.

there...that's my info good deed for the day!”

“Also the importance of Vitamin K2 is increasingly understood to be vital in directing calcium in our bodies to our bones instead of arteries! Due to the beneficial recent increase in Vitamin D consumption, (which spares Calcium to some degree, allowing extra Calcium availability), it's important that this extra Calcium goes to the right places in our bodies. Vitamin K-1 from green veggies, etc. regulates blood clotting, but Vitamin K-2 directs Calcium paths. We get K-2 from grass fed meats, some fermented foods, and other sources. But these K-2 sources are not usually enough, especially due to changing meat from grass and range fed (to the end) to grain-fed, thus altering the Omega-3's to omega-6's and deleting K-2, among other changes. There is an important new book by Kate Rheaume-Bleue titled "Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox" which I think will revolutionize much of our thinking and add much quality and length of life to us all! We need this extra Calcium we are taking in our bones, not our arteries please!”

“For someone accustomed to coastal California, just about any place in the UK would have a more congenial climate than the fire-and-ice climate zone that extends from Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas east to New England. Spain and Portugal would be closer matches.”

“I actually LOVE the idea of colder weather, more rain and some good fog.

Is that weird? Too much sun causes havoc with my poor spotty skin (I spend way too much correcting that issue) and I actually hate hot weather.

I might fit right in with the climate there.

Is that why some pubs are said to serve drinks lukewarm, I wonder?”
